    I would much rather have the Accelero Xtreme with the pretty purple fans. Sparkle's Calibre line used to look awesome. I'm not a fan of the Phantom style heatsink.


    The fans are underneath the heatsink.

    There's 3 fans underneath that heatsink, just like Gainward Phantom.
    You can see the fan blades from the 3rd picture.

    Phantom Rip-off, even the clocks aren't that impressive. I would sue if I were Gainward...

    I'm not raising my eyebrows untill I see a pair of those hit 17,5k on 3DM11. I have a pair of MSI's running on 1100 on air just fine.

    the design of the sparkle's calibre card is awesome..
    if only they used the arctic cooling accelero extreme like their previously nvidia's fermi released cards (non df cards) it would be great..:ohwell:,
    maybe those fans will run more quiet and do much better thermal treatment rather than arctic cooling accelero extreme, who knows..

    review please :rockout:

    yeah, I meant the new sparkle cards. Your 560's are very impressive as well :toast: As for my msi 670's, they are the OC power editions with the new TF4 cooler. They run faster than a gtx590 on stock voltage. :D
